to jim lehrer? he might as well not even showed up last night. he lost control of the debate and mitt romney ran all over him like a truck crushing a bug. we don't need a moderator for the next debate. we didn't have one last night. we'll talk about it, who won who lost, is it going to change anything. first, let's take a little time out to get the latest, today's current news update as always from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill, welcome back. it is a good day to be back. good morning everyone. with the first debate under their belts the candidates are back on the campaign trail today. president obama starts out where he left off in denver then he heads to madison wisconsin. joe biden is in iowa and mitt romney is in virginia. but who wants to talk about all of that when what you really want to talk about is the debates. a lot of claims thrown around last night. we're going to do some fact checking for you this morning. but first let's start out with a bit of a recap.
is jim lehrer of pbs. the debate is structured into a series of 15 minute questions, many focusing on the economy. the economy gets the first half of the debate, with questions 1, two, and 3. then they move on to the topic of health care, which has major economic impact, the role of government in our society, and the final segment will be on the governing cells of the candidates. jim lehrer can assign the final questions. there was a coin toss to decide who would take the first question. president obama has won that and will take the first question. we would like to involve you in the process and talk about this important debate, what you will be looking for from candidates, whether or not you have already made your decision. most particularly, if you had a chance to ask a question on this domestic policy debate, what would you most want to know from these two men? let's introduce you to our first guest. from inside the debate are -- the senior political reporter for yahoo news, who has been on the campaign trail with governor romney. >let me start with a pc filed recently, is sens
. the debates go on and on and on. tmz caught up with jim lehrer moderator of the debate. there was this whole controversy over the debaters, the moderators are not supposed to sort of step into the debates and be kind of quiet. maybe was jim lehrer a little too quiet? tmz caught up. this is what he had to say. >> do you feel you were disrespected by president obama and governor romney? >> i didn't expect much. >> they worried that he was treated like a doormat was part of the possibility. >> yeah. they both kind of ran right over him. give me more time. i'm going to continue. jim didn't seem to have a lot of control in the debate. >> it's hard, though, rob. >> it's intimidating. how do you tell the president, how do you control that? has to be a better way. other people have done a better way. i don't think other moderators, whether it's our own martha raddatz or candy crowley, i think you would have seen a different tone. >> should have considered simon cowell. for this role. exactly. >> exactly. >> who was on -- >> jim, 12th, perhaps final. >>> real quick news here. j-lo in paris for fashio
after a strong showing in last night's presidential debate. cnn national political correspondent jim acosta has the latest. jim. >> reporter: wolf, flying to virginia mitt romney will spend much of the day after the first presidential debate up in the air. but for the first time in weeks the state of his campaign is not. mitt romney took his victory lap after the first presidential debate receiving a sustained standing ovation during a surprise visit to a conference of conservatives in denver. >> i saw the president's vision as trickled down government. and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> reporter: it didn't take long after the debate was finished for the romney campaign to turn the spin room into the win room. are you declaring victory, jim, if this was a boxing match, the referee would have called it. after taking some knocks from some in the gop after spending too much time in debate prep and not enough in rally in swing states, the romney campaign felt vindicated. although eric fehrnstrom pushed back on the
no idea. i have absolutely no idea why. i'm surprised jim lehrer didn't ask about it. i was surprised romney didn't affirmatively try to defuse it himself. i was surprised that obama didn't bring it up. biggest surprise for me of the night is that it didn't come up. it's been the dominant thing in our debate for the last few weeks. >> david axelrod is coming up. jon meacham, you look over the past 25 years, 30 years or so, and you look at the republican presidential candidates who all have strengths, they've all been remarkable men in their own way, but not good debaters. you know, republicans have held our breath through the john mccain debates and the george w. bush debates and the bob dole debates and the george h.w. debates. again, a great man, a horrific debater. you know, the famous jon lovitz line, "i can't believe i'm losing to this guy." playing michael dukakis. you really do have to go back to ronald reagan to find a republican that was in command during a presidential debate. and i predict that's going to excite the republican base in a way it hasn't been excited in a very
despite mitt romney doing this. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs, i'm going to stop other things. i like pbs. i like big bird. i actually like you, too. i'm not going to spend money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> he [ bleep ] fired big bird! he still won walking away. romney won with the sound up. >> you're entitled to your own airplane and your own house but not to your own facts. >> romney won with the sound off. dude, he's yelling at you! look up! look up! what are you looking at? what are you writing that's so important? what are you doing -- oh, that's not -- oh, i didn't realize. that is impressive work. i didn't realize that. maybe you could give that to mitt romney as a souvenir of the night he crushed you in that debate. >> my gosh. okay. >> so that's what he's doing. because i'm sitting there going, what's he doing? >> good morning, everyone. >> it makes more sense. it fills in the blank. >> that gives us proper context. >> it is friday. it is friday, thank god. i need two days away from all of you people. october 5th. >> mika, hold
for the first time since moving back to d.c. it is still sinking in, folks. good afternoon, i'm jim handly. >> i'm pat law son muse. it was an unusual scene for sure. the nats didn't score a single run but they still got to celebrate as they made franchise history. now more on what lies ahead for the team. >> reporter: hey, jim and pat. i'm sure we all know the numbers. the first time since 1933. 79 years that we have a first place baseball team here in washington. davy johnson has been saying since spring training, it is a three-step process. first, qualify for the playoffs. second, win the division. and then three, win the world series. to win the world series though, it will help the nationals if they have home-field advantage. right now they are tied with the cincinnati reds for the best record in baseball. with two games to go, the nationals, if they win both, will likely have that number one seed. if they have that top seed, they will begin the postseason on sunday against the winner of friday's wild card game. if they don't, and if it is the number two seed, they will start their postseas
at the beginning of the subjects that jim leherer will introduce. and discussing not policing 30-second rebuttals and 60-second statements. none of that red light stuff with the clocks and all of that stuff. and when you're in mitt romney's position, where he's actually trying to hide some things, trying to hide the details of the deduction side of his tax plan, he's still hiding his tax returns. when you're that candidate who has things that you don't want to talk about, those very narrow rules are your friend. the red light is your friend. the very limited 30-second response, 60-second response works well for candidate who trying to dodge and trying to get away from things. president obama, i think is going to have an advantage in the way the non-rules are in this debate tonight. and i also think that mitt romney has come off a series of really easy debates. we have to remember, mitt romney triumphed in a republican presidential field that was the worst republican presidential field in the history of the republican party. those are the debates he won. he was the one on the stage who did not loo
. this youtube have has already gotten more than one million hits. jim axelrod has more on this athlete's amazing story. >> reporter: it's not hard to pick out niko jogging with his varsity soccer teammates at concord carlisle high school outside boston. he is and always has been the kid with one leg. what is hard to do when watching niko is to believe what you're seeing. >> my disability doesn't define who i am. my disability gives me a challenge every day. >> reporter: born without a right leg and right hip, niko was raised by parents whose only expectation for their son was that he not expect any special treatment. >> there's no you're not taking out the garbage, you're doing everything that every other family is doing. >> do you take out the garbage? >> oh yeah. i hate it, though. >> reporter: he was just 5 years old when he decided a traditional prosthetic leg was holding him back. >> you can go with the forearm crushes, they give you the opportunity to be more mobile. i can run on crutches. i can climb mount kilimanjaro. >> reporter: at 13, niko became the first one-legged climber to reach
's basically a part-timer at pbs. it was a curious choice of all the journalists that jim lehrer is who they called on for this. the one criticism that i see that resonates the most with me. we have three presidential debates and this was the domestic policy debaltdebate. this was a narrow set of policy questions last night. there were no questions about immigration last night or gay marriage last night. >> women's issues. >> these are major issues in the campaign and there's a movement to diversify the moderator pool a little bit. >> jim lehrer is a historic choice for them, but they treated him as a replacement ref. he should be out of the pool. >> i didn't think he was great. you can't blame the moderator. they had the same. >> he was terrible at his job. >> ultimately this wasn't about jim lehrer but president obama and mitt romney. they both had the opportunity to take advantage of the situation, and one did and one didn't. >> all right. so what do we make of all the 2012 election predictions out there? the original nate, nate silver is in the guest spot next, or is it becoming the
by mitt romney about how he would cut spending to pbs. the debate was hosted by pbs' jim lehrer. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs and other things. i like pbs, big bird and actually like you too, but i'm not going to keep spending money on things and borrow money from china to pay for it. >> reporter: this debate turned out to be the most tweeted event in u.s. history. 10.3 million tweets in total. the big bird comment you just heard generated 17,000 tweets per minute. wow. mike? >> people are apparently passionate about big bird. >> reporter: who knew people loved "sesame street" so much, right? >> no doubt. i never doubted it. >> we all grew up on "sesame street." kristin fisher live in our satellite center. >>> every debate includes a little stretching of the truth so to speak. did mitt romney or president obama do that when they were talking about taxes? derek mcginty watched the debate with our partners at "u.s.a. today." take a listen. >> reporter: there was a lot to talk about regardless, a lot of facts out there, especially this $5 trillion in tax cuts.
. >> for america's future. jim vandehei with politico. >> saw him kicking a puppy at dupont circle yesterday. >> he did. actually, it was on the hill, so he must have kicked two puppies yesterday. jim. >> how is that for an introduction? >> and a good morning to all of you. >> we welcome our guest jim. we love you. let's talk about your big piece this morning. you and mike allen written one a lot of people talking about today. the romney family rebellion, tell us what happened. >> yeah, i think it's a pretty interesting look in what's happened behind the scenes in the romney campaign over the last two to three weeks and what you've seen is really the family asserting itself with mitt romney. particularly ann romney and tagg romney. softening his image, projecting a more moderate image, particularly in the debate and since then. and i think the victim in all of this would be stewart stevens, the chief strategist from the beginning and several campaign officials have told us he's been fenced in. basically doing ads, not doing a lot of the grand strategy. that's been turned over to people like tagg ro
runs, runs batted in. jim axelrod has been following this. jim, good morning. >> reporter: once in a generation might actually be underselling it. this hasn't been done in 45 years. miguel cabrera is now taking his place alongside some of the greatest names in baseball history. >> getting ready to hit third in this inning. >> reporter: he could have sat but the 29-year-old miguel cabrera chose to play anyway last night and soaked in the fan's appreciation for his rare achievement. even in kansas city they were cheering. just 16 years old when the venezuelan was signed by a major league franchise cabrera earned his place in the history books with 14 home runs, 139 rbis, a batting average of .330 all tops in the american league. he joins a who's who of baseball great including triple crown winners ted williams, lou gehrig and mickey mantle. >> guys like alex rodriguez, manny ramirez, barry bonds, your take a look at any of the great baseball players in the last 45 years, hank aaron never did this. >> reporter: carl yastrzemski was the last player to achieve the triple crown in 196
